the purchase contract to suit the
board.

parcel that used to be a parking lot

Services.
As proposed, the county will take
possession of the acreage and cede
over the prime corner health de-

cash.
This is Mr. Procacci's second at-

sponsored by Pineview Chevrolet. About 400 children on 32 teams will play Little League this year. Seepage lB for more on the kickoff of the season last weekend


Fight involved ax handle, rifle, knife


The state attorney's office is
sorting out who to charge as a re-
sult of a fight between two men
who used an ax handle, knife and
rifle to try to settle their differences.
The morning of March 13, Tim-
othy Griffis, 31, of Macclenny was
delivering a birthday present to his
child, who lives with his mother
Angela Howard, Mr. Griffis' ex-
girlfriend.
Ms. Howard said he had been
drinking and became angry when


he realized she was with another
man, Anthony Fisher, 26, of Glen
St. Mary.
He tried to force his way into the
home, which is located on Nursery
Blvd., but she was able to push him
back out the door. He left, but re-
turned.
He left again, but returned, this
time carrying a knife and ax han-
dle.
At that point, Mr. Fisher went
outside and grabbed a .22 caliber


rifle off the porch.
He shot Mr. Griffis in the leg,
but told police he didn't realize
he'd hit him.
Mr. Fisher grabbed the ax handle
from Mr. Griffis, who in turn cut
his ear with the knife.
Mr. Fisher returned the favor.
"I beat the [crap] out of him
with the stick," he told Deputy
Brad Dougherty.
Mr. Griffis again left, saying to
Ms. Howard, "I hope you're hap-


py.
This time he did not come back.
Instead, he went to Country Boy's
store in Glen where he encountered
Dep. Adam Faircloth, who called
rescue when he saw Mr. Griffis
bleeding profusely from the head
and lower leg.
In recounting the story for the
officer, Mr. Griffis said he'd been
beaten with an ax handle, but never
mentioned being shot.

Macclenny Elementary principal Luanne
Williams knows a great teacher when she
sees one.
And she's seen a few.
Ms. Williams was principal at Westside
Elementary when the school produced the
last three district teachers of the year.
And this year, her first at Macclenny Ele-
mentary, she has another one Ronda Hart-
ley has been chosen 2005 Baker County
teacher of the year.
"Ronda is a fabulous teacher; she looks at
each child to see how she can help," Ms. Wil-
liams said. "In fact, she's more than a teacher,
she's like a mother to the children. She sees
every one as her own and wants to see them
succeed,
"And they go to her, they see her compas-
sion."
She went on to characterize Ms. Hartley as
the "focal point in our school."
"Not only the children go to her, but par-
ents and other teachers. It's because she's a
good listener. We have lots of people who are
talkers, but she's a listener," Ms. Williams


said.
Baker County School Superintendent Pau-
la Barton said there are "too many good
things I could say about Ronda," calling her a
"very dedicated teacher who goes above and
beyond."
She cited the night sessions Ms. Hartley
conducts as one of "all the extras she takes
on."
As the school's media specialist a 21st
century version of the school librarian Ms.
Hartley says she gets the opportunity to
"reach all the children" instead of just one
class.
She's says her focus is to "promote the en-
joyment of reading," which can be a chal-
lenge given the distractions today's children
have video games, dozens of television
channels and the Internet.
To do that, she tries to "make books come
to life" during storytelling times. One of her
techniques is to use stuffed animals repre-
senting characters in the books she reads to
the children.
She also conducts a book club and holds
an awards ceremony for students who reach
their reading goals.
Unlike a lot of teachers, who come to the

profession from other fields, Ms. Hartley said
she knew she wanted to teach from the time
she was in elementary school.
"I enjoyed going to school [and] had won-
derful teachers," she said, adding that after 14


years at the job she still "likes what I'm do-
ing... I don't mind getting up Monday morn-
ings."

workers
Only two months after they were
hired on a part time basis, court-
house computer technician Clint
Shivers will go to full time and
code enforcement office Bobby
Hancock will get more hours than
his current 16-24, but is supposed
to stay under a 30 hour per week
threshold.
Both were hired in mid-January,
splitting the salary of former com-
puter tech Jesse Tampoc, who left
after he was denied a pay hike.
Ironically, Mr. Tampoc sought
the increase to take on maintenance
of sheriff's department computers -
and that is the reason Mr. Shivers is
moving to full time. The Baker
County Commission will bear the
added salary expense.
Deputy Greg Burnsed has been
handling computer duties for the
sheriff's department, and will con-
tinue to be responsible for patrol
car laptops. Mr. Shivers will take
care of desktop machines as he
does at the courthouse, administra-
tion building, building and zoning
offices.
Nick Frilling is responsible for
the property appraiser, tax collector
and elections supervisor offices.
Meanwhile, Mr. Hancock has
been assigned a number of duties
beyond the original scope of code
enforcement. His latest assignment
will be to compile information on
roads, bridges, culverts and similar
infrastructure acquired over the
years. A new government account-
ing system requires the data includ-
ing when and from whom each
item was acquired.
Assistant road superintendent
Darrell Crawford has been working
on. the project,spending hours
combing through old minutes
books to find when roads were ded-
icated to the county. Such items
should be indexed for quick ref-
erence, but there were times over
the years when that duty was ne-
glected, so the data is hard to find.
"I think you're going to find he's
looking for data that just doesn't
exist," Baker County Commission
Chairman Julie Combs predicted
March 21. Some minutes were more
thorough than others, so many
items of business were only lightly
covered or not at all.
"I predicted these positions
would come back to us for full
time," said Commissioner Gordon
Crews, who said he wants a regular
report on Mr. Hancock's hours and
progress on the infrastructure data
collection.
Besides the code enforcement
duties for which he was hired, Mr.
Hancock has been assigned to the
Buildings and Facilities Commit-
tee, to a mega-site task force to co-
ordinate with the Chamber of Com-
merce, and to plan park amenities.
He has also acted as liaison with
Jacksonville architect Bill Bishop,
whom Mr. Hancock recruited to in-
spect roof and other problems at
the annex and courthouse. Mr.
Bishop has worked for the school
district a number of years, includ-
ing when Mr. Hancock was school
maintenance director.

Still loves

school...

(from page one)
Hartley got her undergraduate de-
gree in elementary education from
the University of North Florida af-
ter attending the Florida Commu-
nity College in Jacksonville for
two years. She went on to get her
master's in the same field.
While working as an intern at
Macclenny Elementary when it
was located on Jonathan Street,
she met her husband Mark Hartley,
who also was teaching there.
Mr. Hartley, a county commis-
sioner, is now teaching at the high
school.
The couple, who will celebrate
their 14th anniversary in August,
have two children: Taylor, 12, and
Ty, 7.
She said Ty is excited about be-
ing in school with her. "He's a
reader," she said with pride.
Ms. Hartley was a member of
the building committee when the
district built the "new" Macclenny
Elementary School on County
Road 23B.
She helped design the media
center, which also includes a small
broadcast studio where the chil-
dren go before the cameras to
make the morning announcements.
Elementary education is where
Ms. Hartley said she belongs.
"You can make an impression
on them right now. At that age
they're willing to listen. You tell
them something, they believe
you."
She also said she has no desire
to leave the school.
"I'll be here forever. This is
home."
And it's where she tries "to
make a difference in their lives."
An indication of her happiness
and satisfaction is this: Ms. Hart-
ley couldn't recall what her salary
is.
"I don't even know what my
salary .is. I know what it says on
the checks but I'm not sure what it
starts at," she said with a laugh.
"But there are lots of rewards -
the smiles, the hugs... all that
means a lot."

A.Maxville -man was arrested:in
Taylor County, Florida about mid-
night on March 17 just hours after
he allegedly drove off in a truck
parked with the keys inside from
the lot outside the Country Club
Lounge in south Macclenny.
Gene Burns of Glen St. Mary
told police he exited the lounge at
10:00 pm after about an hour and
found that his 1988 Ford was gone
from the lot. He reported the theft
and the vehicle was entered into a
crime computer network.
Later, police learned the Ford
was stopped 100 milds from here
with Lance Rewis, Jr., 25, at the
wheel. He was charged with grand
theft.
A similar count was lodged
against Charles E. Bailey, 43, of


Macclenny.for,the. alleged theft of
a rifle and pistol from George W.
Rhoden, also of Macclenny.
Police said the firearms were
taken from the victim's residence
off St. Mary's Circle sometime the
morning of March 14, possibly
when the suspect's brother had
gone there to pick up a check.
The brother tipped off Mr. Rho-
den about the theft and the suspect
fled from Deputy William.Starling
when he went to Mr. Bailey's resi-
dence off Deerwood Circle to
question him.
Deputy Starling said Mr. Bailey
later admitted to the theft, and said
he traded one of the firearms for
cocaine. It is not clear what hap-
pened to the other gun.
They were valued at $325.

Easter

MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
,t. .,KnUti I GERARD

"Oh, look what I bought for
Holly," my wife chirped. Holly is
our daughter Sara Beth's college
roommate and is staying at our
house for Easter. Kelley produced
some Target bags and pulled out a
purple and pink Easter basket, pur-
ple Easter grass, and purple wrap-
ped chocolate eggs.
"I take it Holly likes purple?"
"I hope so. Sara claims that she
does."
"So you're doing the full meal
deal for Holly?"
"Of course. If she's going to be
here for Easter, then the Easter
Bunny needs to visit her at our
house."
If the sheer weight of decora-
tions has anything to do with it, we
must be high on the Easter Bun-
ny's list of places to visit. My wife
has our house decorated to a fare-
thee-well. There are little ceramic
bunnies and chickies everywhere
you look.
Big stuffed bunnies in all pastel
colors are sitting around our hearth
and tiny little Easter Bunnies
pushing wheel barrows of decorat-
ed eggs trundle across our buffet.
Candy dishes are filled with
M&Ms in pastel colors.
Easter is one of the Big Three
in our house. The other two deco-
rated holidays are, of course,
Christmas and Halloween. Kelley
is working up-to Thanksgiving, but
it is still a -istant fourth.
Christmas decorations take up
an entire closet. Halloween has
three plastic tubs, Easter two, and
Thanksgiving part of a tub. Arbor
Day and Flag Day aren't even on
the radar screen yet.
I like Easter. Like Christmas, it
has its religious and secular side.
But in the realm of decorations, it's
all bunnies and chickies
And Peeps. We can't forget
Peeps.
Son Spencer is a Peep fanatic.
He is so happy the manufacturers
of the little marshmallow chickies
have started branching out into
other holidays so his supply of
Peeps is almost year round.
The problem with Spencer and
Peeps is that he can't eat just one.
Or two. Or three. When Spencer
attacks a box of Peeps, all that will
be left is the memory. Spencer and
a box of Peeps resembles a hoard
of locusts descending on a wheat
field.
One of the funniest things I've
ever seen was when Spencer and
my buddy Denny Wells attacked a
box of purple.Peeps. Yes, that's
right, they were purple Peep-eat-
ers..
The locusts descended on the
box and it was gone before you.
could sing the first verse of Here
Comes Peter Cotton Tail (which,
by the way, is the only verse any-
one in Christendom actually
knows).

Get behind effort to fund

Burnsed House, Old Jail...
In November 2004 several Baker County Historical Society mem-
bers, Baker County Commissioners, City of Macclenny Commis-
sioners, and other community members went to Tallahassee to support
the grant applications for the Old Baker .County Jail and the Burnsed
Blockhouse before the Florida Historical Commission.
The Old Jail grant application was ranked 39 out of 117 grant appli-
cations. The Burnsed Blockhouse grant application placed 27. If the
Florida Legislature votes to fully fund the Special Category Grants at
$12.5 million as requested by the Historical Commission, the top 46
will be covered and nearly $555,000 will flow into Baker County for
the restoration of the Old Jail and Burnsed Blockhouse.
Two historic structures in Baker County will be preserved. The coun-
ty's economy will be given a boost in the short term by the money spent
on the restorations and in the future with increased heritage tourism.
Make a difference. The Florida Legislative session began March 8.
Write your Florida State senator and representative and urge them to
vote to fully fund the Historic Preservation Special Category Grant
Projects. The entire community will benefit.
Thank you for your interest and support.

They ate so many Peeps so
quickly, they were foaming at the
mouth. The two of them looked
like rabid Peep eaters. They had
purple foam coming out of their
mouth and their teeth were dyed
purple. It was one of those "I wish
I had a camera" moments.
I'm surprised I didn't have a
camera. Next to Christmas, Easter
is my wife's most photographed
holiday. Since before they could
walk, she has taken pictures of the
children in their Easter finery. She
lines up all the relatives and takes
pictures of them. She photographs
the kids hunting Easter eggs.
They still hunt Easter eggs and
at 19, Sara Beth has become a cut-
throat who will throw an elbow or
put a hip check on a cousin if she
spots the prize egg. Holly better
get her game face on if she knows
what's, good for her. We're a pretty


competitive lot.
Unfortunately, I haven't been
able to convince my brood that
part of the holiday traditions is
rolling colored eggs. My wife
scoffs and says that's some sort of
heathen practice they only do up
Yankee-land where I grew up.
We've tried it a few times, but it's
not caught on in the Gerard house-
hold. They'd probably like it better
if the eggs were raw.
Of course, I don't like every tra-
dition that goes along with Easter.
I have a long standing feud with
Easter grass I hate Easter grass.
My wife chuckles every time she
shows me she has bought new
Easter grass for the baskets.
Easter grass is a lot like Christ-
mas tree. needles. It's March and I
am still finding the stray pine nee-
dle up under a couch or chair.
Easter grass is more insidious,


It will linger until the end of sum-
mer and resist all attempts to get
rid of it. Easter grass is tougher to
get rid of than the Ebola virus and
twice as virulent.
Try to vacuum it up and it will
wrap around the barrels or wheels
and stay there until the next time
the vacuum cleaner is wheeled out.
Then it will drop off and hang
around in a corner consorting with
stray pine needles.
If you try to use a broom on
Easter grass, it will hide amongst
the bristles and never make it into
the dust pan.
I am convinced that in the event
of a nuclear war, the only thing left
alive will be cockroaches wearing
wigs made out of pine needles and
Easter grass.
Happy Easter and if you want
some spare Easter grass, you know
where, to call..,,..,


Dear Editor:
Four dollars to get into a junior
high baseball game?
Come on, that's ridiculous!
A family of five, going to see
their son or brother play a ball
game three times a week costs
$60. That seems expensive to me.
Can you imagine a grandparent
on a fixed income trying to see his

Glen Council actually 'debates'issues


BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Commentary
One of the criticisms of news-
papers and columnists in particu-
lar is the perceived emphasis on
"negative" news.
It's a complex topic and now's
not the time to go wading into that
tar pit. Instead, let's just go with
some positive stuff this week.
In my 20 years as a journalist,
I've covered a lot of governing
boards city councils, county
commissions, school boards, zon-
ing hearing boards, planning com-
missions, and so on ad nauseam.
There have been a couple of
good ones, a few bad ones, but
most are unremarkable.
The cream of the crop, howev-
er, is right here in Baker County.
It's the mayor and town council of
Glen St. Mary.
They care about their town and
its people.
That's not to say 'other boards
don't, but sometimes government
officials, especially elected offi-
cials, let politics color their ac-
tions.
Based on what I've seen, that's
not the case with Mayor Juanice
Padgett and councilmen Larry
Payne, Perry Hays, Charles Re-


neau and Lewis Crews.
When an issue arises, they gath-
er information, consider it, then
discuss it (or intently discuss it, de-
pending on the issue), then vote
what they believe to be.the best
path.
That's the way it's supposed to
be done. It's good for the people of
Glen, who know where their rep-
resentatives stand and why.
Most of those people, of course,
get that information from The
Press, and it's much easier to do
our job when more information is
available.
That's where agencies like the
Council on Aging, which would
rather people not know what
they're doing, or the school board,
which never really airs issues, fall
short.
In fact, I swear the school board
is about to set some sort of record
for most consecutive unanimous
decisions. Nobody ever disagrees
on anything.
Is it that every decision is so ob-
vious, there's no'alternative? If so,
why even have a board?
Is it that every member coinci-
dentally has identical views on
every single issue? If so, should
we call it the Stepford Board?

Or is it that they come to agree-
ments prior to their meetings, then
vote just as a formality?
Well, it couldn't be the latter
because that would violate the
state's Sunshine Law.
Anyway, when Glen officials
air their differences it provides a
more well-rounded understanding
of what's at stake.
That was the case throughout
the town's biggest issue bringing
water 4nd sewer to its residents
and businesses.
For the town to thrive or per-
haps even simply to survive it
needed to move forward.
The mayor and council knew
that, yet they agonized over the fi-
nancial impact on lower income
residents.
In the end, they wisely chose to
meet the future, but at the same
time explored every avenue to
ease the impact on individuals.
Anyone who says different is a
fatheaded fool.
Another good example of how
Glen gets it right was the recent re-
quest by a land owner to rezone
the former ice plant property to in-
dustrial.
At stake was the town's future
as set forth in its Envision Glen
plan, which contemplates that par-
ticular area as a place for small
business and residential.
The man who owns the proper-
ty is a Baker County guy who said
he wanted to do right by the com-
munity.
However, the rezoning would
have allowed subsequent owners
to put warehousing or manufactur-
ing facilities there.
It turned into one of those intent
discussions especially between
Mr. Payne and Mr. Crews.
The former argued passionately
for sticking with Envision Glen,
the latter for doing the right thing
for a good guy.
Both, of course, were correct.
And by their arguments, they
framed the issue an issue, by the
way that countless small towns
face with varying degrees of suc-
cess in a way that offered a clear
picture and choice.
As it turned out, the property


owner offered a compromise,
which is likely to be approved.
It was a true win-win.
Now, maybe in the year and a
half I've been covering Glen, I
haven't seen the worst of its lead-
ers.
Maybe they're not the wisest
and most decent politicians I've
seen. I could be wrong, but I doubt
it. (Although there's a first time for
everything.)
And down the road, if there's
good cause for my opinion to
change, I'll be here in this same
space to let you know.
Because after all, there's a limit
to how much positive news a jour-
nalist can stand to write.

Threatens to kill deputies


A Macclenny man was charged
with aggravated assault and two
counts of battery on police officers
March 19 after punching, kicking
and threatening to kill them while
resisting arrest on two outstanding
warrants.
Michael Harvey, 27, was at
Mac's Liquors around 11:25 pm
when police arrived.
Deputy Charles Ross told Mr.
Harvey he was under arrest on
felony warrants for possession of
cocaine and dealing in stolen prop-
erty and grand theft.,
As the officer led him outside,
the suspect punched a second
deputy, Darrin Whitaker, who was
standing near the door..
Sgt. Ross tried to stop him by
hitting him on the left arm with his
flashlight, but in the struggle, he
actually hit Mr. Harvey in the back
of the head.
The three men fell onto the
hood of a car, then to the ground.
At that point, Mr. Harvey said,
"I'll kill you [guys]."
The deputies were able to hand-
cuff him, and he was taken to
Fraser Hospital for treatment.
At the emergency room, he con-
tinued to threaten Dep. Ross, say-
ing that if he 'couldn't get to the of-
ficer directly, he'd go through his
children to get to him.
In addition to battery and aggra-


vated assault, Mr. Harvey was
charged with resisting arrest with
violence. All three are felonies.

Sees need to win back trust offending agencies


'Bom social worker' takes over CoA


BY NANCY SZANTO
News Editor
The newly hired director of the
SBaker County Council on Aging
sees herself as a "people per-
son...and born social worker" who
wants to guide the agency back to
a position of trust within the com-
munity.
"Accountability will have to
come first in how both the com-
munity and our clients view the
Council. The way to win the com-
munity is to make them a part of
the Council on Aging," Mary Bax-
la said in an interview March 22.
Even more immediate, she said,
is the need to win the trust of fund-
ing agencies.
"We need good documentation
so the money will come in. We
have to account to the Area Agen-
cy on Aging and Department of
Transportation."
The area agency funds a variety
of services including meals, home-
makers, health care aides, respite
care. The Florida Department of
Transportation funds medical and
hardship transport trips. Both
agencies had indicated funding
was in jeopardy unless the council
cleaned up its record keeping and
showed the money was being spent
properly.
"I know what the area agency
requires, and I can help the council
have a good relationship there. We
also need a sense of community be-
tween the council and local agen-
cies and government," she said.
The Baker County Commission
gave an extra $143,677 atop its
original $132,900 this year, and
Macclenny added $22,000 to its
regular $34,000 pledged at budget
time last fall, to bail the council
out of a financial crisis.
Ms. Baxla has a lot of long range

Cabaret'

heads list of

weekend fare
BY BOB GERARD
Entertainment Editor
,,There are a few interesting of-
ferings this week.in the Jackson-
ville area.
The musical Cabaret is in its fi-
nal week at the Alhambra Dinner
Theatre. The musical has great
songs, but is very dark in its over-
ll themes.
Cabaret takes place in Germany
soon after the Nazis came to pow-
er. The decadent life of a Berlin
cabaret is tempered by the fear and
apprehension of the people in the
play. With the Nazis on the door-
step, everyone is trying a little too,
hard to have a good time before
the good times go away. Cabaret
is a racy, bawdy, and often serious
musical that won't appeal to ev-
eryone, but has a lot of meat on its
bones. Call 641-1212 for ticket in-
formation.
The Springing the Blues Festi-
val is April 1-3 at the SeaWalk Pa-
vilion. Blues stars Mofro and Tins-
ley Ellis highlight the event which
has over a dozen blues groups per-
forming.
If country music is your thing,
Hank Williams III is at the Free-
bird Caf6 at 9:30 pm on Sunday,
April 3. He's a good combination
of his dad and his granddad's mu-
sic, and is making a name for him-
self in contemporary country. Tick-
ets are a steal at $15. Call 246-
2473 for ticket information.


ideas which she knows have to take
a back seat for awhile until more
immediate problems are resolved.
Amorig them are more activities
and events, guest speakers, craft
instructors, some medical services
like bone density scans and a podi-
atrist to trim toe-nails.
"These things help to prolong
active living, keep seniors interest-
ed in life and living, to delay the
time they might have to be institu-
tionalized," she explains. Many
older people live alone and have
little social contact, so a vital senior
center may be the key to keeping
them alert and interested.
"I feel I'm a born social worker.
I love to help people help them-
selves. Everyone should strive to
do their utmost to stretch. That's,
my philosophy with staff, clients,
myself," Ms. Baxla explained.
An adult day care and an assist-
ed living facility are also among
her dreams for the future. "Ninety
percent of assisted living is by un-
paid volunteers relatives. If those
caregivers die before the career, "
the person often has to go into a
nursing home."
And of course there is the coun-
cil's goal of a new senior center.
The council currently has to rent a
storage unit for old records, and
has two food and supply storage
warehouses behind the senior cen-
ter. The restrooms and upstairs are
not handicap accessible, the dining
room is packed full at lunchtime,
the tiny kitchen can hold only one
person at a time, there is little
room for activities, and the roof
leaks.
Ms. Baxla's 19 year employ-
ment with one of the agency's key
financial sources, the Area Agency
on Aging, will be a big help in pi-


Mary Baxla


loting the local center to stability.
"I audited Baker County's pro-
grams for several years, so I know
what we're supposed to be doing,"
Ms. Baxla said. As with the FDOT,
the area agency's funds come with
requirements to file both applica-
tions and reports in timely fashion
and format.
She went to the area agency in
1986 as a contract manager, moni-
toring programs in a seven county
area with training and technical as-
sistance.
In 1988, she moved to working
with the Medicaid Waiver contract
program, and the following year
became a lead aging specialist for
a variety of programs. She became
assistant director in 1994, a posi-
tion she held until last December.
At the area agency, herboss for
years was former Baker County
Council on Aging director Annette
Kjeer, who retired a little over a
year ago.

As she said during the council
board's interview process March
15, "You just know when it's time
to move on," noting her new boss,
Linda Levin, had most of the same
skills and knowledge. Ms. Baxla
likely would have moved into fund-
raising and grant writing.
"I had told the area agency peo-
ple I would stay on two years after
Linda came in. But it really wasn't
necessary. In Miami, she had held
the same job as I, and so there was
a redundancy.
"I will enjoy the people contact
here versus the paperwork," Ms.
Baxla added.
At the time Ms. Baxla turned in
her resignation, Ms. Levin sug-
gested she consider helping the
Baker County Council on Aging.
Local board members reinforced
that, asking her to apply for the di-
rector job when Tonnie Blakely
announced she would resign.
So a few weeks ago, Ms. Baxla
began volunteering at the Senior
Center in Macclenny.
"I had to know if it was going
to be do-able, so I did it several
weeks and felt it is possible. The
board is wonderful...meeting two
or more times a month. I've seen
boards in other communities and
this is not the first aging agency in
trouble but I've never witnessed
such dedication before."
Taking the director job is like
coming home, she told the board
during the interview. "My children
consider this home. My oldest
graduated from here," she said of
her Navy family's life here in the
1970s.
The council itself is a homecom-
ing she was the council's second
employee, hired in 1975 by first
director Kay Hedge to become the
agency's outreach social worker.
In that capacity, she enrolled "all
the original clients," her r6sum6
states.
She was also instrumental in
developing what was then called
the Rocking Chair Express trans-
portation vans. "It was my design
on the bus," she said.
Interim director Ms. Blakely will
remain for about two weeks for the
transition then will become the
council's volunteer coordJinator.

Teen threatens a samaritan


A Macclenny boy was arrested
on weapons charges March 20 af-
ter threatening a man who'd stop-
ped to intervene when he saw the
boy hitting his girlfriend.
James Hudnall, 17, was charged
with aggravated assault with a
deadly weapon, displaying a fire-
arm during a felony and improper
exhibition of dangerous weapon.
The first two are felonies, the third
a misdemeanor.
The Press is publishing his
name despite his age because of
the nature of the charges.
Mr. Hudnall was arguing with
his girlfriend just before noon out-
side his home on south SR 121


when a motorist drove by. The
motorist told police he saw Mr.
Hudnall hitting the girl, so he
stopped.
The boy went into his home and
returned carrying a rifle.
He confirmed he'd been argu-
ing with his girlfriend, and told
Deputy James Marker he'd re-
trieved the rifle to scare the mo-
torist.
The officer was unable to im-
mediately locate the girl.
Dep. Marker went into the
home to confiscate the .22 caliber
semi-automatic rifle, a 12 gauge
shotgun and an air rifle.
He then arrested Mr. Hudnall
and took him to jail.

Seeks refuge in attic after a domestic


Police arrested a Macclenny
man for domestic violence March
16 after he fought with his wife,
then tried to hide in his attic when
police arrived.
Edward Lipnick, 41, was charg-
ed with battery for dragging his
wife across the floor and hitting
her in the head and back, banging
her head into the floor.
Deputy Randy Davis arrived at

Sells crack to

informant on

street comer
Investigators have identified a
Macclenny man who sold crack
cocaine to an informant March 15
during an drug buy orchestrated by
police.
Emmanuel Reed, 39, faces fel-
ony charges of cocaine possession
and sale within 1000 feet of a
school.
The informant told police about
previous drug buys from Mr. Reed
at his home on Ninth Street.
They gave the informant an un-
dercover car and $40 to make the
buy. It took place just before 4:00
pm in the car as they were parked
on Grissholm Street.
The informant returned with .2
grams after giving some back to
Mr. Reed, apparently as a form of
kickback.
Investigators identified Mr.
Reed on the videotape of the deal.
In another drug case, police ar-
rested a 14-year-old middle school
student for smoking in the boys'
restroom.
School officials were called to
the area during third period after
someone noticed the smell of mar-
ijuana.
No students were in the area, so
they asked teachers if they'd given
hall passes during the period.
There was one.
Officials found a pipe, a partial-
ly smoked joint, rolling paper and
a joint on the boy, who was turned
over to police.

10:48 pm at the couple's home on
North 40 Circle to find the woman
with a swollen forehead and sever-
al cuts and scratches on her back.
She said she and her husband
had been lying in bed arguing
when he pushed her onto the floor
and assaulted her.
A search of the home failed to
turn up Mr. Lipnick, but as Dep.
Davis was leaving he heard noise
coming from upstairs.
He went back up and found Mr.
Lipnick, who said he'd been hid-
ing in the attic because he was
scared and knew he was in trouble.
In other domestic violence cas-
es:
Erik Yonn, 31, of Glen St. Mary
of arrested March 13 for violating
a court order to stay away from his
ex-wife.
He blocked her car with his
around 8:34 pm on Smokey Road,
then got out, yelled obscenities at


her and hit her car with a flash-
light.
He then threatened to kill him-
self, and drove down the road
recklessly. He approached the In-
terstate 10 overpass at a high
speed as if he were going to drive
off.
Deputy Adam Faircloth eventu-
ally located Mr. Yonn, who denied
striking his ex-wife's car, but ad-
mitted to calling her home a cou-
ple of times.
SPolice filed a sworn complaint
against Chris Mobley, 27, of Jack-
sonville for aggravated battery
against his girlfriend.
She told police March 19 that
Mr. Mobley grabbed her by the
hair and wrists and held her down.
When she reminded him she
was pregnant with his child, he
pushed his fist against her fore-
head and applied pressure, but did
not strike her.

The commission appears resigned
to the increased staff needs that are
coming with technology and
growth. For instance, several board
members have noted added cleri-
cal help will soon be needed at the

where land use changes and build-

Suspects in

a burglary

The sheriff's department may
have a suspect or suspects in one
of two home burglaries that oc-
curred during a two-day period
late last week.
Nathan Altman returned to his
home off South 7th in Macclenny
following a brief absence on
March 19 to find a rear window
had been entered.
An inventory disclosed $1345
in valuables and property were
taken, including clothing, a cook-
ing grill, cell phone and computer
equipment.
Donald Rosier returned to his
residence off Pleasant Grove
Church Road near Taylor late on
March 18 and found it had been
entered in a similar manner.
Earrings and two rings, along
with a knife, were taken from jew-
elry boxes in a bedroom, all val-
ued at $1120. The owner had been
away but a short time that after-
noon and evening.
Police said they were able to lift
fingerprints from the interior and
several shoe prints outside. The
victim named two possible sus-
pects who live in the area, and
who he had seen in the neighbor-
hood recently.

Ladies win thriller against Broncos


Clay County March 24 at 5:00 pm.
They are off for spring break be-
fore traveling to Episcopal April 5.
Those two games are the first of
four straight against district foes.


It's an opportunity for the Cats,
who are 0-3 in the district, to bet-
ter position themselves for the
season-ending tournament, which
will be held the last week of April.


Press Advertising
Deadline
4 pm Monday


With the game on the line, Lady
Wildcats pitcher Ashley Norman
was on her game.
The tying and winning runs
were in scoring position in the bot-
tom of the seventh as Middleburg's
clean-up hitter stepped to the plate
with one out.
She'd already had two hits in
the game and had driven in three
runs.
But Norman, in her second
game back from injury, struck her
out, then got the game's final out
on a fly ball to preserve a 10-9 vic-
tory March 21 at Middleburg.
The win evened the Lady Cats'
record at 6-6 as they look toward
the second half of the season.
Led by Sarah Bradley's two hits
and two RBIs, they parlayed just
six hits into 10 runs.
After the Broncos scored two in
the bottom of the first, the Cats
came back with four in the second.
Mindy Roberts, Kylee Canaday
and Jessi Nunn walked to lead off
the inning.


Brooke Arzie singled home Rob-
erts, then Canaday scored on a pass-
ed ball. Two outs later, Jessica Jen-
kins walked to force Nunn home,
then Arzie scored on a wild pitch.
Middleburg pitchers walked
nine in the game.
After the Broncos tied it with a
pair in the second, the Cats re-
sponded with two of their own in
the third.
The teams then traded single
runs, putting the score at 7-5 into
the top of the fifth, when the Cats
tallied three.
Bradley's double scored Nunn,
who'd led off with a single and
was sacrificed to second.
Norman then helped her own
cause with a single to drive home
Bradley. She later scored what
proved to be the winning run on a
ground out by Kassie Crews.
Middleburg got three in the bot-
tom of the sixth, then one in the
seventh to draw within 10-9 and
set up the showdown between


Norman and the Broncos' clean-up
hitter.
In her two games since return-
ing from a back injury, Norman
was not been as sharp as before.
She'd been averaging a little
more than a strikeout per inning,
but against Middleburg she fanned
four and walked five.
Of the nine runs she gave up,
however, just one was earned.
In her first game back, a 9-2
loss at Suwannee County March
18, she had just two strikeouts and
six walks.
Only two of the runs against her
were earned.
The Bulldogs jumped out to an
8-1 lead after two innings, includ-
ing a six-run second.
The Cats, who had five hits,
scored single unearned runs in the
second and third.
A game scheduled for March 17
against Bolles was rained out.
After three straight road games,
the Lady Cats return home to play

Until the Fat Lady Sings
OBSERVATIONS BY BOB GERARD


It's hard to predict just what the
Florida Gators basketball team is
going to do.
Sometimes the players are the
ultimate overachievers, as in 2000
when they made it to the NCAA
finals.
But this year, the Gators have
sported something of a split per-
sonality.
This is the same team that beat
Kentucky twice, but struggled
against teams of less repute.
After winning the SEC champi-
onship, it looked like the Gators
might, just might, be peaking at
the right time.
But the funny thing about the
NCAA tournament, the way the
brackets are set up puts teams
against opponents they know ab-
solutely nothing about, and that
can cause problems.
In their first game, the Gators
were matched up against Ohio
University.
Ohio is a minnow in the ocean
of college basketball, whereas the
Gators are more along the line of
sharks. The minnow, however, bit
back as the Gators squandered a
big lead, then barely hung on for a
67-62 win.
That should have been a clue
they had better watch out against
their next opponent, Villanova.
'Nova plays in the tough Big
East against top flight teams like
Connecticut, Syracuse, Boston Col-
lege and West Virginia. The Cats'
conference schedule had them
more than ready for the Gators.
The Wildcats were not a team
the Gators face on a regular basis,
and in the end, it really wasn't very
close.
'Nova out-shot and out-muscled
the Gators on its way to a 76-65
win.
It was another in a series of dis-
appointing early exits for the Ga-
tors since their finals appearance,
but not really surprising, consider-

^ ^Mfc


ing their up-and-down perfor-
mance in the regular season.
'Nova will go straight into the
fire in its next game, facing num-
ber one seed UNC. It would be
foolish to ever bet against a battle-
tested ACC team.
The remainder of the Sweet
Sixteen bracket contains a few sur-
prises.
Wisconsin will face a resurgent
NC State. The Wolfpack barely
made it into the NCAA tourna-
ment, getting in with a good per-
formance in the ACC tournament.
Since then, they seem to be
peaking, taking out UNC Charlotte
and two-seed Connecticut in a
thriller.
Duke is in, of course, and will
meet Michigan State in probably
the best of the weekend games.
Kentucky continues to roll and
will face a surprising Utah team
featuring Andrew Bogut, who
might be headed toward being the
top pick in the NBA draft. The
Utes dispatched three-seed Okla-
homa.
Top-seeded Illinois will match
up against Cinderella team Wis-
consin-Milwaukee. I really would-
n't want to be in Milwaukee's gym
shoes.
The game I don't want to miss is
Arizona and Oklahoma State. Ari-
zona is my pick for the finals.
Washington and Louisville
square off, while Bobby Knight re-
turns to the Sweet Sixteen with
Texas Tech to take on West Virgi-
nia.
Get ready for yet another smor-
gasbord of roundball entertain-
ment.


North Florida All Stars grab third place

HONORABLE MENTION
The boys' weightlifting team brought home a win against Fleming Island last
Wednesday, 55-34.
First place lifters were Lukas Crews in the 119 class, Jonathan Trippett in the
183 class, Chris Miller in the 199 class, Jon Sapp in the 238 class, Blake
Yarbrough in the heavy weight class, Kevin Stone in the 139 class, Craig Yarbor-
ough in the 219 class and Matthew Craig in the 154 class.
The boys' track team lost its tri-meet against West Nassau and Bishop Snyder
March 18.
"Even though we didn't win, we came out in good fashion," said coach
Charles Ruise. "The boys did well, they are a young team with a few seniors.
We're still building. I'm looking forward to a stronger and more victorious
showing."
The next meet is March 24 at the Clay Invitational.

In Memory
of
Clarice Sapp Monds
11/14/1914 3/25/1998
My Mom named me Easter
I was born on a cold Sunday morn-
ing, just after the sun had come out.
The midwife who came to deliver me
was so happy she could shout.
"We have us a bouncing baby girl
who has just entered into this world
She'll have to be named Easterfor this
day."
And that's how I became Easter
Bonnie Faye.
It so happens the midwife's name
was Easter, too,
So to name me anything else would
never do.
My birthday doesn't always fall on
Easter Sunday.
Like this year it comes on a Monday.
On March 25 of '98, my pnom
passed away.
And then she was buried the 28th,
on my birthday.
WE LOVE AND MISS YOU,
BONNE FAYE AND FAMILY
In Loving Memory


of
Elgin Fisl
Fond memories of you
in our hearts,
Treasures from which
depart.
Time cannot erase them
hold them dear,
Although this month, it
years.
It is not easy seeing the
one by one,
But praise God for eac.
has begun.
On His love and grace
eyes,
Knowing, that soon we
in the skies.
